Dowling sees the big picture with 3-D event


Robert J. Dowling, former editor-in-chief and publisher of The Hollywood Reporter, is teaming with event management company Unicomm to launch the 3-D Entertainment Summit.

Focused on the 3-D film, video gaming and home entertainment markets, the summit is designed to address the long- and short-term business strategies affecting the emerging marketplace.

DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg is scheduled to deliver the opening remarks at the Dec. 1-2 event at the Beverly Hilton.

Plans call for a three-track conference program that would feature more than 20 sessions and 50 speakers. Breakout forums would cover strategic business issues in technology, content production/postproduction and playback and distribution.

A showcase area will allow tech and service vendors to meet with industry stakeholders to discuss business, demonstrate products and build partnerships. (partialdiff)
